I had a running battle with the company over the subject of over charging for a change of hotel. No charge from the hotel that we moved from but Brittany charged twice the day rate for one night at our second choice hotel. The staff in this business are surly and the MD just backed them up. A very greedy... More

Both crossings were hassle free all staff on both ships / land based were great . Facilities on board are good and adequate for our needs . We hope... More

Everything on the ferry is as you'd expect but a word of warning: passport control takes FOREVER on both sides of the crossing, particularly at Plymouth. We have been known to take 2h 30 to board (forget dining on board etc...!), as for passport control in Plymouth... utter chaos! Also can take something like 2h, very goaling when you want... More

Took the ferry from Portsmouth to Santander with a pet friendly cabin. Getting on board was straightforward. The facilities on board are good and not overpriced. We ate in the restaurant and the food was very good. We had to leave our dog in our vehicle when we got on and for an hour before we got off. I felt... More

My husband and I recently travelled to France from Plymouth on a night crossing. We had a very nice meal in the self service cafe. It was very good value and very tasty. We also had a bottle of wine which was very nice and also reasonably well priced. We were pleasantly surprised. Would definitely recommend giving it a try.

In general boat was as always immaculate and on time, staff were as always very professional, friendly and responsive. Our family always uses BF on a number of crossings and on each occasion. The above is true. The only complaint is the hot food in the self service restaurant is very poor on all trips, they could do better with... More

Very comfortable ship. Three good restaurants. The cabin was immaculately clean and very quite. Slept the three of us quite comfortably. The highlight of the journey was the dolphin and whale watching. Enjoyable and relaxing start to the holiday.
